NEMS and MEMS

HomeSyllabusLecturesReadings

The expanding and developing fields of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and nano-electromechanical (NEMS) are highly interdisciplinary and rely heavily on experimental mechanics for materials selection, process validation, design development, and device characterization.
These devices range from mechanical sensors and actuators, to microanalysis and chemical sensors, to micro-optical systems and bioMEMS for microscopic surgery. Their applications span the automotive industry, communications, defense systems, national security, health care, information technology, avionics, and environmental monitoring.
